Blue Magic


This review is from: Blue Magic (Drinker of Souls) (Paperback)
If you liked Drinker of Souls, you will probably like this book. This book stands alone though and you don't have to read Drinker of Souls to enjoy this one. It has been several generations since Bran's last adventure when she is called to "remember the promise" she made to the heirs of Harra Hazzani (a character from Drinker of Souls). From there coincidence abounds as Bran runs into the current generation of offspring, from her previous companions of adventure. It does seem a bit far fetched and tired (an easy way out of creating completely new companions for Bran) but after a few pages that feeling fades. Kori (the heir of Herra) is trying to save her brother Tre, who the Chained God has selected as his new priest. The threat comes not from the Chianed God, but from a powerful sorceror Settismaksim, who has forced the villagers to accept the Goddess Amortis and her servant/enforcers into the villages, where they burn the priests of the Chained God. Bran is called by Kori, from her sedintary life as a potter, to stop Settismaksim. The plot gets complicated as the reader (and Bran) realize that Settismaksim is not a completely vile and evil sorceror, rather a flawed man who is trying to give his people freedom. The Chained God, in his greed, really doesn't care much one way or the other and forces Bran, the changers, and Danny Blue into a battle with Settismaksim. Other Gods of Brans world manifest (the Godalau, and Tunjii) and there are parallel universes and all sorts of other plot twists to hold your interest. There isn't much high-tech sci-fi in this book, but if you like fantasy, and magic, and improbable things this will be right up your alley
